Right off of Clark Ave, under Accipiter lies a bunch of hidden gems within a hidden gem. Much like the mischievous feline from Alice in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat Gallery can be tricky to find, but once you do, you’re in for a treat. For those of you who don’t know, the Cheshire Antique Gallery is an underground Cameron Village shop where you can find all sorts of antique treasures, from jewelry to furniture to art to classic vinyl. Cheshire Cat vendor and interior designer Emily Cochran takes us around the Cheshire Cat to find nine amazing pieces for your home.

Glass Coffee Table

We begin with this baker-style coffee with bamboo base. It features a glass top with a brass edge. This is a great classic piece that could certainly be a focal point for your living room. Booth: Instant Gratifications.

Pagoda Table

Here we have a great accent table with very interesting lines. If you’re wondering why it’s called a “pagoda table,” take a look below it. We missed it the first time too. Booth: Emily Co – Hot Tip: Emily said if you mention this blog post at Cheshire Cat, she’ll knock $100 off of the price!

Wicker Elephant

A little charm, a little whimsy, a little practicality…this wicker elephant foot stool has it all. It would serve as fantastic accent piece or, if you have it a bathroom, a great place to store towels. Booth: South of Houston.

Greek Key Bar

This bar features greek keys which is the rectangular pattern you can see on all of the drawers. It’s a subtle feature that adds a lot of character to this high-end piece. Booth: Wester-Niven.
